Our litigation attorneys have a wealth of experience in all aspects of intellectual property, antitrust, corporate, entertainment, and commercial litigation. Our goal is to work in a partnership with our clients and achieve the best and most cost-effective outcome in each circumstance.
We have successfully represented plaintiffs and defendants in cases before numerous state and federal courts including the United States Supreme Court, as well as before regulatory agencies, such as the International Trade Commission. We are also experienced in alternative dispute resolution forums, appreciating that litigation may not be the answer in all circumstances. We frequently combine our litigation skills and expertise with our corporate experience in situations such as work-outs and reorganizations.
Whenever settlement makes sense, we do whatever we can to bring about a successful resolution. If settlement is not an option, however, we have no hesitancy about trying a case to either a judge or a jury. We are also very aware of the financial burden litigation places on clients and make special efforts to control costs and work within budgetary constraints.
